Four years ago Frank arrived at Old Main to become one of the original "52ers" and since then has consistently upheld the traditions of the senior class. Frank has shown his versatility by keeping his car running and his renowned tenor voice mellow. Frank's variety of cars has brightened the campus with brilliant hues, the most notable of which is the fire-engine red of his present model, while his voice has added to many chapels and assemblies. Frank was made immortal to his fellow students by his famous rendition of "Mule Train," complete with bull whip. We know that with his many talents, Frank can not help but travel far, no matter what the vehicle. ooooooooooooooo CARALCONTE Chicago, Illinois Vice-President Senior Class Vice-President Aeichlorians Secretary Student Council President Paint and Palette Club Dormitory Council Keynote Club Hilltop Staff Orange and Black "First Lady" Triple Trio Mixed Chorus Merit Status Caral arrived in the middle of her iunior year to become a valuable addition to the class of '52. She quickly found her place among the students and in the heart of one of the "5lers," a present N. U. freshman. Caral has proved her art ability. ln her iunior year she won first place in the annual water color contest, and since then she has been working in oil portraits. In a less serious vein. she constructed a beautiful giraffe named George. George played an important part in the iunior class assembly. As "First Lady" in the play of the same name, she demonstrated a keen dramatic talent and much of the success of the production was due to her excellent performance. With her ever present smile and many abilities, we all know Caral will make good in whatever she does. ooooooooooooooo DONALD CURTIS Glen Ellyn, Illinois Hobby Club Basketball Arriving in the middle of the senior year, "Don Iuan" Curtis created quite a flutter in many feminine hearts. He looked them all over but decided to remain true to his gal from Glen Ellyn. In his quiet manner Don has managed to get a firm foothold on Academy life. During spring vacation Don became one of the Glen Ellyn Triumvirate-Plus-One-From-Chicago who voyaged 148.5 miles into Mexico. During the winter athletic season Don went out for basketball and was a valuable asset to his intramural team. With his blue eyes and his blonde curly crew cut Don has found it easy to fit in with the "52ers," and we feel sure that with these assets he can not help but fit in anywhere. IEAN KATHLEEN DAVIS Wayne, Illinois Editor 1952 Hilltop Keynote Club Paint and Palette Club Orange and Black Aeichlorians "First Lady" "Twelfth Night" Triple Trio Mixed Chorus Merit Status Rotary Award Kathy came to the Elgin Academy from the great metropolis of Wayne and joined the class as a Freshman. Ever since then she has been one of the school's most outstanding students. Kathy will be long remembered for her quick wit, ready appreciation. and her voice that carries so well, sometimes at the wrong times. However, it has been put to good use in major parts of several plays. In recitals, Kathy's lovely alto voice is acknowledged one of the most accomplished in the school. Her editorship of this year's Hilltop is an example of the many positions of responsibility she has come to hold. We wish Kathy the best of luck, but with her keen intelligence and likability we're confident she won't need it. KENT GRUNEWALD Chicago, Illinois Major E Club Football Swimming The teachers of the Elgin Academy all heaved what appeared to be sighs of relief when the problem child ot the "52ers" graduated last February. However, we know they really felt as Kent's fellow students did, that his absence was a loss to the senior class. Gruney left many places vacant when he left. including corners of several female hearts. More important to Kent, however. was his place as star of the basketball team. In the dormitory Kent was known as "The White Devil" and did his best to live up to the name. The sight of his curly black head with its impish grin peering around corners was a familiar scene at any time of day or night. We've missed you Kent. Good luck. CHANDLER HATCHER Highland Park, Illinois President Orange Club Vice-President Major E Club Dormitory Council Student Council Mixed Chorus Orange and Black "First Lady" Football Swimming Track Merit Status Big Chan ambled in in his junior year to become a valuable addition to this year's graduating class. With his infectious grin. ready humor. and easy manner, Chan soon captured the heart of E. A. and its women. especially one dark homecoming queen. Chan's talents extend to many fields. When Major "E's" were awarded, Chan was present both for football and swimming. This able breast stroker has helped stack up many points for the Sons of Neptune. Another field in which the Highland Park boy excels consistently is voice. His has proved itself both musically and dramatically, for Chan has been prominent in many plays and musical productions. We know that Chan's winning ways will open the door to success no matter where he may knock. DON HEDRICK Glen Ellyn. Illinois President Senior Class President Major E Club President Student Council Orange and Black "Twellth Night" Double Quartet Mixed Chorus Football Basketball Tennis Blond Don with the fsighj lopsided grin fjust ask l-Ielenl came to us from Glen Ellyn in his junior year. He was imme- diately elected president of the "52ers." a position to which he was confidently reelected this past year. As captain of the lootball team and a stalwart on the basket- ball team. Don has displayed his athletic prowess which helped both academy teams out in many a tight spot. He was also an outstanding player on the tennis team. Although many admiring glances were cast Don's way by E. A. females. his heart was captured by one small senior girl. We all wish Don the best ol luck in the future. ooooooooooooooo IOHNHEDRICK Glen Ellyn. Illinois Major E Club Mixed Chorus Dormitory Council Student Council "Twellth Night" Football Basketball Tennis Strong. silent Iohn arrived two years ago to become a vital part oi Academy lite. Iohn never went out of his way to get attention but his whimsical personality drew people to him. Until half way through his senior year Iohn's lace could be seen looking around the corners in Sears Hall dormitory for during that time he occupied the position ot secretary of the boys' dorm council. After that he became one of the Glen Ellyn triumvirate that commuted daily. Iohn was a needed stalwart on the Academy eleven. He also added his ability to the "jayvee" basketball team. With his appealing blush and shy smile. Iohn will be long remembered by his fellow students. May he have the line future he deserves. BETH HETZLER Barrington. Illinois Treasurer Aeichlorians Dormitory Council Triple 'l'rio Mixed Chorus "Twelfth Night"' "First Lady" Keynote Club Merit Status Beth KI'm not from Crystal Lakelllj I-letzler came to us from Barrington as a freshman. This hazel eyed blonde was shy and bashlul. but has pleasantly overcome this in the past four years. One eccentricity still continues, that horrible tear of mice which she has exhibited on several occasions in the dorm. Beth is noted lor her musical inclinations. Her talented fingers have made many chapels and recitals enjoyable. and for a time it was believed that Beth might even play the violin. She also sang for several programs. She could be heard sing- ing sweetly to her collection of stuffed animals. so large it practically dispossessed her roommate. Her other inclinations lean toward dramatics. merit status. hamburgers, and a variety of boys. Good-bye, Beth, and best of luck. ROBERT IZENSTARK Chicago, Illinois History Club Keynote Club Maior E Club Hobby Club Basketball Swimming Four years ago the "52ers" were blessed with the arrival of Bob, the war surplus boy. Well known for his familiar saying "Stark's has everythingl," and his amazing financial ability, Izzy has the full confidence of his students that he will become a millionaire by the age of thirty. The other part of his ambi- tion seems to be to possess a Parisian harem. We all wonder if the purpose of his recent European trip might not have been to scout for prospective members for his harem. tEd. note: Mr. and Mrs. Izenstark accompanied their son, Robert, on said voyage.D In case you wanted to know. Izzy's epicurean tastes leaned toward sardines and crackers. Anyway, good luck, Izzy. We're glad you made itl ANN IAEGER Elmhurst, Illinois Aeichlorians Mixed Chorus Orange and Black Keynote Club Ann is the perfect personification of the oft used description "beautiful blonde." She entered in the beginning of her senior year and very quickly attached herself to a very willing Bobby. Renowned for her quizically raised eyebrows and long golden locks, Ann is the envy of many of the girls in the dorm. Al- though Ann is usually rather quiet she becomes more active at night when she is often seen nocturnally preambulating. In a more serious vein, her literary achievements can be witnessed in the O. and B. In addition, one of her poems was accepted and published in a nationwide high school poetry anthology. The Academy is really going to miss you. Come back and visit us soon. ooooooooooooooo PENNEYIOHNSON Elgin, nlinois President Aeichlorians Editor Orange and Black Assistant Editor 1952 Hilltop Treasurer Paint and Palette Club "Twelfth Night" Mixed Chorus "First Lady" Student Council Merit Status Petite Penney bounced up to the academy in her Freshman year and has been bouncing along with the class of '52 ever since. Penney's interests in everything, including males, have been widely diversified throughout her four years at Elgin. Her efiervescent laughter could be heard everywhere, except, per- haps, when she was trying to gather articles for the Orange and Black or officiating in the serious capacity of president of the Aeichs. This cute senior's alacrity and ability to inject a little humor into the gloomiest situation have made her well liked by all, so it was rarely that Phil has had her to himseli. We know that as Penney bounces along through life her infectious spirit will endear her to those around her as it has done here. HELEN IOHNSTON Chicago. Illinois Aeichlorians Mixed Chorus Keynote Club Paint and Palette Club Helen came in her junior year and immediately found her place at E. A. She also found a place in the heart of the "52ers" president and stayed there. Helen is known for her strict diets and enthusiasm for modem dance and typing class. Every day throughout the long winter she trudged faithfully down amid ice and snow. Remember those long walks. Helen? In the dorm she was one of the more quiet inhabitants. well liked by all. Her main aversion is towards ghost stories. lust ask Marlene. Helen was a great addition to the graduating class. May she find the future a happy one. ooooooooooooooo EUGENELAMP Elgin, nlmois Secretary-Treasurer Senior Class Secretary Maior E Club Vice-President Keynote Club Student Council Art Editor 1952 Hilltop Sports Editor Orange and Black History Club "Twelfth Night" "First Lady" Double Quartet Mixed Chorus Football Basketball Tennis Merit Status Tall Gene strode in in his freshman year to increase the average height of the "52ers" by 99.91. His six foot plus-plus- plus frame has also added greatly to the accomplished feats of the basketball team. In the past years his talented art work has embellished the covers of the Hilltop. This year he has con- tributed a silk screen design to the '52 annual as part of his position as art editor. He also contributed his personal charm to a select few Academy misses. Gene worked hard at an expert characterization of Malvolio in "Twelfth Night" and gave a superior performance as Hardwick in "First Lady." Everyone will miss Gene when he leaves for college. but we all are sure he will make his mark in the world whatever his target. ooooooooooooooo BARBARAMAY Evanston. Illinois President Black Club Secretary Aeichlorians Assistant Editor Orange and Black Literary Editor 1952 Hilltop Student Council Homecoming Queen "Twelfth Night" "First Lady" Mixed Chorus Keynote Club Merit Status Rotary Award This versatile senior became one of the original "52ers" when she entered the portals of the academy as a freshman. Captur- ing the heart of Happy Chan and being elected homecoming queen are just two examples of her popularity. This girl with the golden voice and a fondness for cheese. which can be seen aging on her dorm window sill. also is fond of drama and iournalism. Her ability in the latter two has been demonstrated by her consistently excellent performances and places on the staffs of both school literary publications. The academy will lose a fine student when Barby graduates but we know her prnnating feet will lead her to success in the future. IOANNE MCCONNELL Wheaton, Illinois Business Manager 1952 Hilltop Orange and Black I-leichlorians Triple Trio Mixed Chorus Io. with her sweet smile and her lilting voice. has cut a big niche for herself here at Elgin Academy. In her four years at the school she has taken part in many and varied activities. Her outstanding talents lie in the fields of piano and working on publications. Her interpretations of many classical and semi- classical pieces have brightened dorm life as well as recitals. As writer for the O. and B. and business manager of the Hilltop she displayed her literary style and perspicuity. Her taste in food runs the gamut, for she is acknowledged a connoisseur in everything from anchovies to marshmallow iluff. Io is a girl who really goes after what she wants and we know she will succeed in achieving her goals. o 0 0 0 o o 0 0 JAMES MONCRIEFF Glen Ellyn, Illinois Major E Club Orange and Black Mixed Chorus "First I.ady" Football Track Every morning worried and hopeful faces were seen peering from Old Main windows and sighs of relief were heaved as "lim made it again!" One of this new student's "car's" most amazing feats was its successful voyage carrying the Glen Ellyn triumvirate-plus-one-from-Chicago to Mexico and back. If one wanted to locate Iim all he had to do was to listen for violent female shrieks such as "No, no, not my books!" or "Where'd my shoe go?" Of course. this teasing was accepted willingly, since it was accompanied by Iim's captivating grin. This iovial expression could also be seen on the football field and the basketball court and track where he aptly participated. We know you will go far. Good luck, lim. MARY LOUISE OWEN Elgin, Illinois Orange and Black Keynote Club Aeichlorians Triple Trio Mixed Chorus Blonde Mary Lou entered the Elgin Academy in her sopho- more year and went on to become a prominent member of the class of '52. With her cheerful personality and optimistic views of life. Mary Lou is often sought out by those with fsobl prob- lems. Mary Lou and her gentle voice have brightened musical presentations. She is also very adept at writing, as can be seen by her frequent contributions to the O. and B., and her able management of the "Little Hilltopper" section in this paper. Her athletic prowess is exemplified by her title of "The Billiard Queen," a position in which she has reigned consistently during the past two years. With Mary Lou's winning personality and gleaming hair we know she will come out on top. o N Q I Q Q I -1. NS Q ef' 1 -5 t 1 ELIZABETH IANE PANKEY Wauwatosa, Wisconsin President History Club Orange and Black Mixed Chorus "Twelfth Night" Keynote Club Paint and Palette Club Merit Status From the renowned town of Schaum-forte and the Milwaukee Iournal comes lane. Her main interests lie with literature and the theatre. especially of Elizabethan times. She has been a great asset to the dramatic productions of the past year. As the scapegoat for the nervous tension of the cast, lane deserved a medal for her patience as well as for her costume designing ability. Known far and wide as the "walking dictionary," this slender Wisconsinite entered easily into dorm life in this, her first year at the Academy. Her collection of animals fstuffedl is domi- nated by representatives of the "Winnie the Poo" series. Many of Iane's new acquaintances are astounded by the greeting of "Why, you remind me exactly of Pigletl" "This above all . . . " lane, good luckl ooooooooooooooo HARLENESIPP Itasca, Illinois Aeichlorians Keynote Club Paint and Palette Club Harlene, much better known as "Sippie," is one of the original "52ers." During her four years at the Academy her great sense of humor has enlightened many a dull moment, especially in the dormitory. It is here that she demonstrated her ability for remembering jokes and telling them at the most appropriate C?J times. Also known as "Proxie," Sippie's newly brilliant-blonde hair caused quite a sensation when it first appeared last year. Every night in Lovell between nine-thirty and ten the strains of the "Rutabaga Boogie" could be heard echoing from the dorm's upper recesses as Sippie taught iitterbug enthusiasts to do everything from the shimmy to the turkey trot. Yes, we know that Sippie will make many friends wherever she goes. DAVID WRIGHT Glen Ellyn, Illinois Major E Club "Twelfth Night" "First Lady" Double Quartet Mixed Chorus History Club Football Swimming Track A friend and a pal of everyone on the campus, Dave was a fellow who was consistent on the football field, in the swimming pool, and in any branch of athletics in which he participated. Dave was prominent in other academy activities. His deep bass voice was one of the mainstays of the boys' double quartet. Whenever a play was produced at the school, the applause of the cast went to Dave for his wonderful stage presence in carrying on fand offl the various stage props, and for his competent stage managing. lt will be some time before memories of our "Campus Cas- anova" fade away. and we all know he will be as well liked everywhere he goes as he was here. NANCEE YELTON Elgin, Illinois Aeichlorians Paint and Palette Club Keynote Club Mixed Chorus Small but yet significant, our Nancee arrived two years ago to make a prominent place for herself in the class of '52. She is well known tor her unusual height of lour feet eleven-and- three-quarter inches and for the seeming impossible task ot peering over the steering wheel of her Ford Victoria. The young lady, who is quite the physicist, could for quite a time be seen tearing around the campus in great chaos with assorted parts of a yet unassembled motor and 400 yards of wire. Nancee recently purchased a mammoth trophy case in which to display her finally completed treasure to all. Nancee will be missed by us all but we know she will reach the top, even if it is on tiptoes. BARBARA YOUNG Elm Grove. Wisconsin Aeichlorians Paint and Palette Club Keynote Club Mixed Chorus "Twelfth Night" "First Lady" Young Barb arrived late in her senior year from "a little ways from Wauwautosa." She was immediately well liked by her fellow students, for Barb is a very likable girl. Whenever any- body wants an "ego booster" or a bit of advice, they run to Barby, who is known for her understanding. We Academians are not the only ones who are appreciative oi Barb's wonderiul personality. Ii the contents of her mailbox are any evidence, a certain tall Notre Damean is also very aware oi it. One ol her most apparent talents is that of expert seamstress. She has wielded the needle in preparing costumes for school productions as well as increasing her own wardrobe. Good luck in the iuture.

BURKE IDA KARSTEN CATHERINE LEA DOROTHY MATAMOROS ACTIVITIES AT TIIE ELGIII ACADEMY The major project of the year at the Elgin Academy is editing the yearbook, the Hilltop. From the first fund raising excursions to the finished product, the days are filled with tak- ing class and club pictures, writing articles, and creating the stories that compose the yearbook. Our ever competent editor-in-chief, Kathy Davis, has done a marvelous job of editing the Hilltop. Working behind her were the rest of the Hilltop staff, which was composed of Penney Iohnson, assistant editor: Barbara May, literary editor: Holly Edwards, junior editor: Ioanne McConnell, business manager with Caral Conte assisting: Eugene Lamp, art editor, and Phil Fox and Leslie lgleheart, sports editors. There are many others who have written the articles, created screen de- signs, and written creative prose without which the yearbook would not have been a success. Everyone must be congratulated on the fine work that has been done. With the beginning of the new school year last September the Orange and Black staff got off to a good start. The paper, miracu- lously produced, came out in one of the first weeks of school. There is a lot of work involved in getting a paper out every two weeks. Our editor, Penney Iohnson, has done an excellent job. Along with Penney and doing a fine job has been Barby May, the front page editor. There were many occupied in the production of the Orange and Black. They are listed as follows: Holly Edwards, business manager: Eugene Lamp and Philip Fox, sports editors: Coach Orsbom, alumni editor, and not to mention the paper's able advisor, Mr. Spaulding. Throughout the year the busy "O and B" staff worked diligently to get out the paper. It circulated not only among the students but 1'HElg52mLL1'0pooooooooooooooooooooo I is my ' UBANGE AND BLACK STUDENT CUUNCII. among the 2000 alumni, parents and friends of the school. So hats off to the 1952 Orange and Black staff. The purpose of the Elgin Academy student council is to bring to attention the students' viewpoints on school issues. It is composed of officers of various school organizations and supervised by the headmaster and the assist- ant headmaster. The members are Chan Hatcher, Orange Club president: Don Hedrick, Senior class president: Francis DeSalvo, Iunior class presi- dent: Ann Stuhler, Sophomore class president: Ion Schurmeier, Freshman class president: Ion Hamill, eighth grade president: Hugh McVey. seventh grade president: Barbara May, Black Club president: Eugene Lamp, senior secre- tary, and Penney Johnson, Aeichlorian presi- dent. 19 The Palnt and Palette Club the school art organlzatlon held 1lS fzrst meetmg thls fall The purpose of the club was to further the mterest of the members m art and ludgmg by the spontaneous enthuslasm of our local con nolsseurs the group w1ll be a part of the school extra curr1culum for many years The Paul Cezanne exh1b1t1on at the Art Instltute of Chlcago and the Good Des1gn Show at the Merchandrse Mart were among the v1s1tat1on hlghlmghts of the year They were taken 1n wlth the purpose of furthermg the development ot the mdxvlduals under stardmg of the begmmngs and the growth of modern art and xts mfluence on our everyday needs Comcldlng Wllh th1s type of study they v1s1ted the Haeger Pottenes 111.

During the year, five hundred and more pictures were taken in- cluding football, basketball, dances, informal group shots and portraits. The club has proc- essed many rolls of film taken by students in or out of the club. The club has planned to buy new equipment in the near future with the money earned. The members had the use of three cameras throughout the year, two of which belonged to Ioe Stennett, our cam- pus photographer. Many of the pictures taken by the members of the Camera club are shown here in the Hilltop. The Camera club has always attempted to do the finest work possible in serving the school and the students. The following were members: Ioe Stennett, Iackie Williams, Iames Moncrieff, Fred Thompson, Ronald Howey, Harry Malcolm, and Morris Sachar. The Keynote club, the musical organization of the Academy, headed by Mrs. Rogers, started the year with the highly successful Keynote party. The officers were Ann Rovelstad, president: Eugene Lamp, vice-president: Holly Edwards, secretary, and Gale Edwards, treasurer. Io- anne McConnell and Carolyn Hall were mem- bers at large. They were elected last year and organized the old members into committees for the yearly costume party called "The Seance." The new members were initiated I O O C O C czxmrnn cum , O O O I O I C I I O O O O I I I O O O O KEYNUTE CLUB during the lun making ol the evening and were proclaimed full partners in the club. During the year monthly meetings were held for business or for pleasure. Usually classical records from symphonies or operas were played for the enjoyment of all. On Ianuary 18 the club descended upon the Opera House in Chicago to see and hear "Fledermaus," the production presented by the Metropolitan Opera Company. Reaching school after midnight, everyone sleepily pro- nounced it marvelous. During a Keynote chapel program the club song, written by Mrs. Rogers, was introduced to the student body. This song is a lasting reminder of the Keynote club of 1951-52. At the beginning of the year, the boys' and girls' dormitory councils were chosen. The general function of the dormitory councils is to assist in the control and operation of the dormitories. Each dormitory is represented by tive or six boarding students who are on the "par" list and have been recommended by the faculty. They must maintain academic standards and show leadership in school activities. The councils meet separately once a week on Monday night. Mr. Loomis is the senior dormitory master tor the boys and Mrs. Baker is the girl's housemother. Some of the duties of the council members are: conducting in- spection, assisting in supervision of study halls, and maintaining leadership. The girl's council consists of Beth Hetzler, Caral Conte, Marlene Brody, Frances Ceraulo, Barbara 0 0 o 0 0 ll0llMlT0llY CUUNCILS May, and lane Panlcey. The boy's includes Chan Hatcher, Les Igleheart, Bill McNamara, Francis DeSalvo, and Phil Fox. The annual Christmas program was pre- sented on two evenings, Thursday and Fri- day, December 6 and 7. It was one of the big events of the year with almost every stu- dent in the school participating in the play. the chorus, or the tableaux. Arrangements for the entire performance were made by C. Dean Chipman, director of the art gallery. with the assistance of the instructors in the music and art departments. The Christmas pageant was a series of tableaux showing the various types ot Christ- mas celebrations throughout the world from the time of the nativity to the American Christ- mas ol today. Included in the scenes were the Nativity. with Mary, Ioseph, and shep- herds: the Medieval Christmas showing the carrying of the traditional yule tree: the French Christmas with children looking out the windows seeing Father Christmas bring- ing toys: the English Christmas with carolers singing under a softly lighted street comer, and then the American scene with the typical American Christmas tree gay and bright with children assisting with the decoration. Ap- propriate music was performed by the chorus and vocal soloists under the direction of Gloria Iune Avant with Constance Kroeger at the piano. Ann Stuhler was the narrator for the tableaux. Students of the iunior high school group and the elementary school chil- dren appeared in the production. 23 1 'iv' 'J A 5 'DEE 2 fqwf: is?

Upon further questioning you would find that "Twelfth Night" by Wil- liam Shakespeare was being produced by some of the Elgin Academy students. The play was enjoyed not only by the audiences but by the actors also. It was not the usual type of play, as the lines were blank verse in many places: sword fights, and iousts were a part of the action of the play, and the come- dians were amusing by their actions as well as their spoken lines. The cast of "Twelfth Night" included the following people: Prologue - - Holly Edwards, Ann Rovelstad Duke of Orsino ---- Richard Bloxam Sebastian - - - Don Hedrick Antonio - - Iohn Hedrick Valentine - - - Lee Ward Sir Toby Belch - - - Philip Fox Sir Andrew Aguecheek - - Francis DeSalvo Malvolio ---- - Eugene Lamp Olivia ----- Barbara May Viola - ---- Beth Hetzler Maria - - Kathy Davis, Penney Iohnson Officers - David Wright, Terry Dye Priest ------ Barbara Bloxam One fundamental part of every play is the costume committee which is often overlooked. Without the help of Mrs. Droste, Iane Pankey. and Barbara Young, half of the glory of the play would have been lost. Mr. Chipman, who successfully directed the play and de- signed the handsome settings for the produc- tion, had patience and faith in every one of the actors. The Homecoming Dance this year was suc- cessfully held in the art gallery on Saturday evening, November 10, 1951. Although there had been a hard game in the afternoon the boys on the team were in good spirits and a good time was generally had by all. Decora- tions for the dance were beautifully done by the senior girls. They very appropriately painted a football field on the floor of the art gallery and had orange and black streamers placed around the building. A large abstract design suggesting a football and goal posts was placed in the octagon. It provided a colorful and dramatic center of interest for the dance. The evening was highlighted by the annual crowning of the Homecoming Queen who this year was Barbara May. Her court con- sisted of Caral Conte and Beth Hetzler. The honor of being the first Homecoming King of the Elgin Academy was bestowed upon the captain of the football team and president of the senior class, Don Hedrick. HIIMECUMING DANCE This year the Aeichlorians. the girls' society at the Elgin Academy. have figured prom- inently in the year's activities. At the begin- ning of the year the Aeichs gave a tea for the new girls. Later they had initiation for the new girls which was probably enjoyed a little more than the tea, especially by the initiates. During Homecoming week end the Aeichlor- ians gave a tea after the game and they also sold chrysanthemums and food at the game. Their biggest event was the annual formal dance. This being leap year, the dance was given on leap year day, Friday, February 29. Named the "Blue Moon Ball," it was deco- rated with blue lighting and various celestial bodies including a blue moon which hung in a prominent place over the dance orchestra. Each month the Aeichs had an interesting guest speaker, and a short play by some of the girls, or a meeting to discuss future plans. The Aeichs should be congratulated for their excellent year under the guidance of Mrs. Droste and Mrs. Brett. After Christmas vacation the idea of pro- ducing another play was passed around and the decision was overwhelmingly in favor of a three act play. Mr. Chipman chose the play. "First Lady" by Katherine Dayton and George Kaufman. There is no doubt about the fact that it was worthwhile. "First Lady" is one play that has to have a director with confidence in everyone and certainly Mr. Chipman stood up to that standard. He was The Leap Year Dance IlElClll.0lllIlN SUCIETY able to give a play which could be compared with a professional one.

Climaxing two weeks of conditioning, instruc- tions on plays, and shaping of a balanced organization, the Hilltoppers were ready for their first test of team strength. This test came at Eckersall Stadium where we were pitted against Harvard's as yet untried eleven. The result of this contest showed that the Acad- emy eleven was still a novice group. The regulars of the previous year provided the moral backing for the shakier, untried mem- bers of the team with a spark of determina- tion. After a week of hard drilling, of mis- takes made in the previous game, we were ready and eager to show our new found might against the foe of that week, St. Willa- brord of Chicago. The might was very evi- dent in the form of one left half, Kent Grune- wald, and field general, Don Hedrick, who paced the Hilltoppers to their first victory of the season, conquering St. Willabrord 19-6. The previously unresponsive line responded this time, pushing the Blue and White all over the gridiron with their unusual offensive and defensive play. Still filled with unconquerable enthusiasm, the next week the team met Todd in the Academy Bowl. Their enthusiasm wasn't quite enough to force the pigskin over the goal line, as they played to a scoreless tie. Nevertheless, the Hilltoppers controlled the pigskin, playing inside the Todd forty yard 28 V . Major Club line throughout most of the game. Northwest- ern, the following Saturday, undid the Acad- emy's plans of conquest, 20-0. The game was a stalemate until the second quarter, when the cadets made their first tally. Then in the second half, the Hilltoppers showed some spirit as they launched an aerial attack which showed some signs of really developing into a late threat, but an off-side penalty clinched a shutout for Northwestem. On October 27, the Academy played host to the Wayland eleven in a one sided contest which the Beavers won by a decisive score of 25-0. The Wayland eleven had just a bit too much class for the understaffed Hilltoppers. but dynamic, five feet four "Pancho" Nunez surprised many a Wayland giant as he averted a number of their scoring threats with his brilliant tactics. In the sixth game, at Glen- wood, the elements, as well as Glenwood's spark-plug team, gave the Academy a trou- blesome time, as they fell victim to an early winter blizzard and a 33-0 score. As the team took the field, the snow had been falling for a couple of hours and by the time the game had ended the gridiron was a crust of ice. with the Hilltoppers in the same condition. The North Shore Raiders came, saw, and con- quered the Academy in its Homecoming and final game of the season, which was played on Elgin High's field as the Academy Bowl was under a foot of snow. Though the score was one-sided, our lads exhibited some fine, sharp blocking and tackling, interspersed with a few bits of uncanny offensive play. ' The l95l Varsity Footbull Schedule O .

O O O O O O The Varsity Football Squad O O O O O O O O The Homecoming Game North Shore Country Day School vs. the Elgin Academy O O O O O The Iunior Varsity Football Squad BASKETBALL The basketball record was none too impres- sive for the nineteen fifty one-fifty two season, as you can tell by looking at the record. Prac- tices started the Monday after the North Shore football game. The team showed real promise the first few weeks, and when we played the Todd School we had a good game, losing by only one point. However, the team then lost some of its original fire and lost the second game by ten points. The second loss to Todd was the turning point in the season, and if we had won it the season probably would have been much different. Almost all of the games were fairly close, excluding the games with Lake Forest, Park, Harvard, and Northwestem but the score always went the wrong way. Individually, the first six players stacked up as follows: At center, Kent Grunewald did a terrific job of rebounding, for his height was six-foot-one. Also he was cr good shot. It would have helped a great deal if we had not lost 30 him at mid-season. The guard, probably the most effective defense man on the team, was Don Hedrick. our veteran senior, who always was in there pitching. His height was five- foot-eleven, and he rebounded well. The sec- ond guard, Rex Conrad, a sophomore, drib- bled through practically anything. Rex was a fast thinker, and was a great asset to the team. Ion Schurmeier, a six foot freshman, took over the center post after Kent graduated and displayed excellent basketball ability. His spirit and hard work helped the team considerably. We predict a great future for Ion on the hardwoods. Last but not least, was the freethrower expert of the team, Fran- cis DeSalvo. He really proved his accuracy in hitting twelve of the fifteen freethrows in one of the last games. The other forward and scoring star was Dick Moulton, who in two consecutive games made twenty-two points. Dick was also a good team man and really added balance to the team. There was one person that deserves men- tion. He was an important cog in the wheel of operations, Coach Iohnson. Win or lose, our coach was always in there. We look for- ward to his coaching again next year. 5 r' ' KX Q - lf' O O O O O O O O O O O O O O O O The O O O O O O O O O O The O O O O The Vursity Buskethull Schedule December 8, 1951 at Elgin-Todd School. 43: Elgin Academy, 42 December 14 at Woodstock-Todd School, 43: Elgin Academy, 33 December 15 at Chicago-Francis Parker School, 44: Elgin Academy, 41 Ianuary ll, 1952 at Elgin-Lake Forest Academy, 69: Elgin Academy, 42 Ianuary 12 at Elgin-Elgin Academy, 49: Northwestern, 47 Ianuary 19 at Elgin-Park School. 55: Elgin Academy, 47 Ianuary 25 at Chicago-Harvard School, 50: Elgin Academy, 47 l at February Lake Forest-Lake Forest Academy, 56: Elgin Academy, 21 February 2 at Winnetka-North Shore Country Day School, 32: Elgin Academy. 25 February 8 at Chicago-Glenwood School, 39: Elgin Academy, 31 February 9 at Elgin-Harvard School. 59: Elgin Academy, 37 February 15 at Elgin-Wayland Academy, 48: Elgin Academy, 44 February 16 at Lake Geneva-Northwestern Military Academy, 48: Elgin Academy, 32 February 22 at Elgin-North Shore Country Day School, 53: Elgin Academy, 33 February 23 at Elgin-Elgin Academy. 48: Glenwood School, 42 TOURNAMENT AT GLENWOOD SCHOOL March 1-Elgin Academy, 46: Glenwood, 88 Park School, 85: Elgin Academy. 54 freceiving second place: fi Varsity Squad 8 Iunior Varsity Squad SWIMMING The foe has been met and is victorious. so went the saying after the swimming meets. This was due to the fact that the material available was inexperienced. There were, however, two outstanding members, Dick Howe and Ion Hamill, both eighth graders, although there were no retuming lettermen. Also new to the swimming team this year was its coach, Mr. Orr. The team took two trips this year, both to Wisconsin, to Wayland Academy and to Mil- waukee University School. Both teams won by over a 30 point margin. To round out the schedule there were four meets slated at home. They were Naper- ville, Milwaukee University School, Wayland. and Ianesville High School. Wayland's second match with the Hilltop- pers proved to be the best meet of the year. The meet ended with a score of 44-39 with Wayland winning. Dick Howe as Elgin's high-point man had twelve points. The rest of the team consisted of Carl Droste, Chan Hatcher, Ivar Hennings. Paul Schriever, Harold Sweet, and Dave Wright. Although the swimming season was not suc- cessful in contests won, a lot of experience was attained. The Swimming Team The Track Team SPRING SPUBTS Another season is gone, not such a bad one either. As it progressed everyone seemed to improve, until we finally struck a happy me- dium. The iirst track meet was a good example of the whole season. It was a triangular meet, and we took second. We were a little short of men all year, which hurt us a great deal. As a whole. the track team wasn't bad, and de- serves some credit for their contributions. The golf team didn't fare as well this year. Although the boys were out there trying, the odds always were too strong. If you've ever played golf, you probably know how hard it is to come back once you've lost a stroke to your opponent. This year the team consisted of Chan Hatcher, Rex Conrad. Gordon Barber, Sims Crump, and Phil Fox. The tennis team had another good season, winning a majority of their matches. The net- men started oli with cr victory and kept their losses to a minimum. Hats off to the Coaches . . . Mr. Orr. who coached golf, Mr. Iohnson and Mr. Morris, the track team's backers, and the tennis mainstay, Mr. Orsbom.

Occasionally there were moments of complete and absolute silence, so deep that he hardly dared to move. His breathing was regular, as that of a person in sleep. But he wasn't asleep: he was thinking. Soon a train would come and take him away from everything, away from all the filthy rotten people he had known and the dreary life he had lived. A serious move this was, running away. Running away is usually considered cowardly, but this was the bravest thing he had ever done. The heavy quiet was occasionally broken by the far-off sound of a train whistle. The long drawn out cry of a train, like the wail of a dying animal . . . long, thin. and helpless. Closer and closer came the sound, and soon the rails began to hum slightly and tingle with appre- hensive anticipation. So did the man. As the train came closer every fiber in his body, every nerve, became tense, began to tighten and fill his body with dread. Was he strong enough to stay and to get on that train? Now his breathing was faster, irregular and nerv- ous. The sound was coming closer and closer. Click. clack, the wheels turned and spoke to him. "Coward, coward, can't get on. coward, coward, can't get on." Over and over they whispened in the distance. He breathed harder and harder now. his fingers gripping the edge of the bench. Now the sigh of the train whistle sounded. Suddenly the train was on top of him, the wheels turning, grinding out their merciless song. Quickly a great roar, and then suddenly the sound again began to fade away. Softer and softer, until it could no longer be heard. Then all was very silent again. and the air was heavy and thick. Again the breath- ing was heard, a little slower now, and then a new sound . . . the soft crunch of gravel. the sound of footsteps growing dimmer and dimmer in the distance. .iv 95' 9 QSXQ I Golf Lois Rosenberg '54 X 'sy S1 111 vvvvvv www?-'J WTKQ 4 I - , J. 5 it .. , iii: S X ff: :XX g4SFIIl Z Q W: :E- fN I WQX- f i 0 X X S 3 .4 Mountams and Fields lane Pankey 52 REVEILLE The mght wmd whistles lowly as xt hnds xts way through the mght arr The cnckets wrth their mcessant creeks and groans and melodies sxng you to sleep wrth a monotony whrch gradually becomes subconscxous Then sllently the ram creeps up quretxng the cnclcets It creates a monotonous pxtter patter on the root endmg ln a gurglmg splash as xt rolls olt the shmgles m tmy rrvulets Almost as srlently as xt came rt creeps away and now only the occasional call of a mght blrd or the hoot of an owl rs lett to lull me to sleep m the silence ot a mxdsummers nxght Suddenly I hear a chlrplng outsxde my window I s1t up dazedly and rt hnally downs on me that Ive just awakened mn the morning Outsxde I can hear the buds Ilxttmg around on the lawn and the nexghbors dog as xt trxghtens away the nxght spmts wxth :ts boisterous barkxng In the krtchen I hear someone movmg around and the sound of bacon and eggs trying on the stove comes tamtly to my ear Richard Moulton 54 I O CREATIVE HRT IN THE l95Z lIll.l.'l'0P 9 On the tollowmg three pages there are three sxlk screen deslgns that have been made 1n the art classes of the Elgm Academy under the dlrectron of the art mstructor Carl E Paak The first desrgn IS Chess by Eugene Lamp the second Clty Scene by Caral Conte and thlrd Carousel by lane Pankey Four block prmt deslgns also appear rn these pages whlch are devoted to the creatrve work of the students of the school The cover deslgn of the book was designed by Caral Conte and executed wlth the assrstance ot Robert Izenstark The general deszgn ot the book was outlmed and planned by C Dean Chlpman drrector of the art gallery 40 xv A s .sfr A I A ,K K J!

And I stopped half-way home from my walk To let it encompass me too. I stood close to a stately old elm, And soon it was all I could see: For the softness of silvery fog Had me severed from all but this tree. C Kathy Davis '52 I gazed up at its dark, leafless boughs Which were patterned against a late sky And the stars twinkled down through the Lasting symbols of beauty on high. The fog had then covered each line Of the harshness of earth's lowly realm, While the glory of heavens shone down Through the limbs of the timeless old elm. All I felt as I stood in the night Was the soft touch of mist on my face, And I knew I should never more see Such great beauty in any one place. INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESS I cried. and tried to find a soul Who'd try to sympathize, But in this world to reach a goal, You work and then you rise. A person has to truly work To harbor self-respect. From life's ordeals he must not shirk, Nor jobs must he neglect. To work with love, to toil and slave. A life in which there's strife, A moral which is strong and brave, With these we make our life.
